Description

A young man calls you to make an appointment, saying once again he has lost his job and that over the last nine years he has lost, or been asked to resign from eight jobs. The appointed time arrives and he does not show. Later that day he leaves a voicemail apologizing for forgetting his appointment and asks to reschedule. He admits that even if he remembered the appointment he would not have made it because he lost his car keys. The appointment is rescheduled and he arrives 20 minutes late. As he sits down he shares he received a speeding ticket on his way here and has had over 50 previous citations. Also, he doesn’t understand why he keeps losing his jobs, as he was always known to make many sales. He then described a litany of stormy relationships with lovers even saying one girlfriend told him he is “reliably unreliable.” He appears disheveled, anxious and demoralized. Talking incessantly while not seemingly able to tell a story in a logical sequence.

Adults portraying Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) often come to see you in hopes of making their life less chaotic and improving their day-to-day interactions with others. They really want to change but simply do not know how. You have your usual strategies to use, but will it be enough? Do you have the tools necessary to facilitate real changes and ease their pain?

Let Dr. Blake share with you tried and true evidence-based techniques, skills & methods that can be easily applied with your adult ADHD clients to immediately improve their quality of life. You will learn the latest strategies to treat impaired executive function, the core issue of difficulty in adults with ADHD. These practical, easy to apply methods will help your adult clients improve their time/task management, personal organization, & planning, thus improving many aspects of their life including employment, relationships, physical & mental health, grooming, driving, parenting, etc. Dr. Blake will also teach your how to coordinate treatment with other necessary professionals inclusive of physicians, speech-language therapists, professional organizers, ADHD coaches, job coaches, academic tutors, career counselors, etc.

Ph.D., P.L.C.


Kevin Blake, PH.D., P.L.C., is a recognized national authority on learning disorders, executive functioning, and AD/HD in children, adolescents, and adults. He has specialized for over 20 years in specific learning disorder, AD/HD and autism spectrum disorder and lives and works as a licensed psychologist in Tucson, Arizona. The interest in learning disorders and AD/HD were spurred by his own struggles trying to overcome his dyslexia and hearing impairment, which were initially diagnosed during the first year of his doctoral program at the age of 26. At the time, the early 1980s, not much was known about adults with specific learning disorder. As Dr. Blake struggled to learn about his own specific learning disorder he decided to make his life’s work the diagnosis and treatment of adults with learning disorders and AD/HD. Dr. Blake earned his doctorate degree from Oklahoma State University and his dissertation research focused on self-esteem and anxiety in the college student with specific learning disorder. When he started his professional life, he was one of a handful of professionals in the country with a focus on adults. Now he travels the country sharing his personal story and what he has learned about specific learning disorder, AD/HD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and other neurobiological disorders with professionals who work with these populations, individuals with these disorders and their loved ones.


Dr. Blake is a member of several state and national organizations, such as the American Psychological Association, International Dyslexia Association, Children and Adults with Attention Deficit Disorders, and Learning Disabilities Association of America. He has been the facilitator of a Tucson support group for AD/ HD adults for several years. Additionally, he is a published author with articles having appeared in Attention!, LDA Newsbriefs, and Perspectives (of the International Dyslexia Association). Dr. Blake was a 1991 delegate to the National Institute for Literacy’s “LEAD 2000 Congress,” where he was a member of a special committee advising the U.S. Congress on diagnostic and remediation issues confronting learning disabled adults. He is an accomplished and engaging speaker whose presentations incorporate germane information, practical how-to’s, and appropriate life experiences.
